How would you? Go to a seamstress who can make them bigger, buy mens clothing, or stop saying yes to big girls...

Get her snowboarding pants.

They are usually bigger.

The PROBLEM is that for some reason they (the manufacturers) think that only small women ski. I know a person that wears a 10-12 in regular women's clothing, but has a HARD time fitting into 18-20 XXL womens ski clothing. It's about time that some company start making clothing with realistic sizing on it and also start making clothing for larger women. I know many women that have to wear men's clothing for skiing because the ski companies think that an XL for women who ski has to fit a woman that is less than 5'5" and weighs 100 - 115 lbs. LENGTH alone could make me need to get men's stuff...but alas, my body requires it as well. IF you find a place...anywhere...let me know too!

check with the guys at Snowshack.com (epic supporter, see below). They stock XXL pants for women from Bear Essentials. Not sure if they've gotten their fall stock in yet, but they've always been helpful when I ask for special orders.

I really hope that you were kidding on that last line. The thing that bothers me is that she aske ME to post that question because she was afriad that someone would respond exactly that way. That was insinative and just confirmed my wifes belief that people don't like big women. Even it was just a joke.

anyway....
So far all I can find that fits her are mens XL but she wants pink and the arms are way to long.

I'll keep looking, thanks for all the replys

Ignore him even if he was joking. Everyone who skis is welcome here. That was uncalled for and just plain mean. I hope to see an apology.....:

Take it easy buddy.

Based on your name I thought it was funny and we do occasionally kid around here.

Big bottom women make the world go round

Yesguy,

Try the Toronto Ski Show. They often have very large sizes there. You can also mix tops and bottoms. It gets a little hectic, but the prices can be very nice.

Insinative?

Suggestions for insinative:

1. insinuative
2. incentive
3. insanities
4. insensitive
5. insinuated
6. incentives
7. incentivize
8. incinerate
9. incentivizes
10. insanity

Any of those? Anyhow, your wife is in luck! There's a couple new men's Burton Ronin coats that features lots of pink. Big and baggy, but that's probably what she's looking for.

BakerBoy, check your monitor settings, the color saturation may be a little high.

1. Pink:

Hey, pink is a state of mind. Fire off an email to Burton, they're the ones claimin' pink! Besides, I don't think a dude could really pull off your shade of pink, without questioning his sexuality.

I know a number here don't like them, but Patagonia seems (to me) to be doing this. And, FWIW, I really like their stuff...

Sizing here. Not sure what you mean by "plus", obviously, but these go reasonably large (US 16), and I have found that they are more generous than other manufacturers (I actually fit in a men's M, but they are the only company for which I do. Most others are L or XL).

Here's a cool pick jacket...

My (virtually Victorian) wife will tell you that soft pink is far more feminine than the hot pick, my friend. Dusty rose, anyone?

That's a good lookin' jacket, and one I suspect a pink-lovin' woman to like! Nice catch, BB.

Not really specifically Ski-oriented, but Cabela's has a pretty good selection of plus sizes. You might try there:

Patagonia makes their men's coats in sizes up to XXL....most of their women's coats go up to size L only. That pretty much shuts out any women over a size 12 for their coats. They are slowly starting to make some of their fleece and under layers in size XL for women, but slowly.
post #21 of 26
Right you are, gotamagal. I missed that. The size chart says 12-14 for L.
post #22 of 26
MEC has a rather promising sizing chart, black pants only though.

Thanks SQUAWMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! Since you seem to be too insecure to post photos, I'm afraid I can't link to any of yours. You can see what actually happened during that picture in the intro of the new ski movie Echo, by Team-13 (www.team13.com). And I must admit, I am no stranger to rocking the pink either --

The mec tip and snowboard gear are both real good ones. Also see if you can tune into a buyer at Sporting Life. I assume you've been there already. They have to be the biggest clothing retailer in Ontario and deal with lots of manufacturers. A buyer should at least be able to tell you how big the stuff is even available. Checking in the states might not hurt either. Often Manufacturers will make a wider size range available for that bigger ( I mean more people) market.
